Harry Kane thinks Tottenham is good enough to win title with current team

Harry Kane believes Tottenham's lack of summer business reflects the organisation's belief that they are good enough to contend with essentially the same squad that finished second in the Premier League last campaign.

Spurs are in Orlando for their preseason camp and three friendly matches as part of the International Champions Cup, with the first on Saturday against Paris Saint-Germain at the Citrus Bowl.

And Kane, who finished as the top scorer in the league last year with 29 goals after scoring seven in his last two matches, said the team trust manager Mauricio Pochettino's transfer plans even if it means there won't be any new arrivals to the team.

"Yeah definitely we think the squad's good enough, you can see not many people have changed since last year," Kane said in an exclusive interview with ESPN FC TV. "We took It right to the end, but look the manager will make his decisions and there's still a long long time left in the transfer window so there's no need to panic or rush anything.

"I think it's clear you'd rather have no players than a player that ain't really right for your team, so I'm sure if the gaffer wants to get the person he wants to get in he'll take his time and make sure he gets who he wants.

"So yeah, from our point of view we're just here to work hard [knowing] the team we got is a special team that we've been playing with each other now for a few years, so it's important that we continue that chemistry."

Tottenham have had one high-profile departure, with Kyle Walker moving to Manchester City on a five-year deal that will add at least £45 million to Spurs' coffers.

Kane's England international teammate is set for a massive pay rise as part of the deal, but money isn't what motivates the Tottenham front man.

"No, not at all, football for me ain't about money and I don't think it's for a lot of players," Kane said. "It is what it is. People go to different clubs for different reasons.

"I'm very much at Tottenham because I love this club and I see it going in a great direction and I feel like we're one of the best teams in England and in Europe as well, so I'm excited for the future ahead."

 

The summer window has also been marked by a paucity of rumours linking Kane with a move away from his boyhood club, a reality he says comes from the fact that "everyone knows" where he wants to be.

"I'm a Spurs player and that's where I want to be for the foreseeable future," Kane said. "I have a great relationship with the manager. I have a great relationship with the fans, the club here, so there's no reason to change that.

"We're a team going in the right direction and again this year I expect us to be up there fighting for that title again and hopefully we can turn some our ambition into wins."
